This Issue of the Quarterly details the past 100 years of the Rutland Union Book Club, a club mainly for women and similar to the book-of-the-month-club. The union was founded in 1882; this article was written by Mary Beth Bloomer in 1982. She uses several primary sources, including the original constitution used to establish the book club and reading lists used by the book club. She uses these sources to draw conclusions about the intentions of the women involved and the changing society in which they lived. This issue also contains lists of members of the book club.
